Dinosaurs and Noah

by  Brad Bromling, D.Min.

The Bible teaches that everything in the universe was created in the same week (read Exodus 20:11). From this we know that men and dinosaurs lived at the same time. Also, there are creatures mentioned in the book of Job that sound very much like dinosaurs (read Job 40,41). Job lived after the Flood. If the book of Job mentions dinosaurs, then some of them must have lived after the Flood. All men, animals, and birds which were not on the ark drowned. If any dinosaurs lived after the Flood, some of them had to have been on the ark.

You might wonder how such large creatures could have gotten onto the ark. That is easy! The ark was 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet tall. You know how big a football field is. The ark was much longer than that!  Not only was the ark very big, but dinosaurs were very small when they were young. If Noah took baby dinosaurs with him, they might not have been bigger than an average dog. Some scientists believe that when all of the animals were on the ark, it was still only half full. That is a big ark! Read Genesis 6-8 and see how that Noah did just what God said. Because he did, God saved him, his family, and at least two of every major type of animal alive at that time.
